new partnership with SDG Systems will further enhance our ability to provide
the best rugged handheld computing solutions to our customers. By working
together, we have created a very unique and in-demand handheld computer with
the Android (AOSP) operating system, now known as the RAMPAGE 6,” said Rob

expertise of SDG gives our customers an original and powerful data collection
device, and we couldn’t be more excited about the opportunities this new
partnership will bring.”

programming environment, multi-platform development, abundant application data
storage, open source flexibility and the opportunity for a custom Android
interface developed by SDG Systems. Additionally, its optional kiosk mode
allows only certain applications to be accessible by the user, successfully
creating a single-purpose device without distractions.
Systems is proud to develop and distribute the RAMPAGE 6 as our very first
SDG-branded handheld computer. Collaborating with Juniper Systems on a product
as unique and dependable as the Mesa Rugged Notepad has made this experience
very rewarding and we’re excited to put the SDG name on it. Our decision
to develop Android (AOSP) for the Mesa
was based on its extreme ruggedness, quality design, and dependability. I am
confident that the RAMPAGE 6 will live up to those standards,” said Todd
Blumer, president and CEO of SDG Systems.
RAMPAGE 6 will feature the many advantages and benefits of the Mesa Rugged
Notepad, including a large 5.7-inch viewing display, IP67 ingress protection
